McCain said that the team trump delaying the implementation of sanctions against Russia
WASHINGTON, 11 Dec — RIA Novosti. Senators Ben Cardin and John McCain said that the administration of President Donald trump is delaying the implementation of a package of sanctions against Russia.
The President of the United States Donald trump had previously signed a law involving the extension of sectoral sanctions against the Russian economy. The law, in particular, suggests that the head of state can impose sanctions on persons who invest in the construction of Russian export pipelines over $ 5 million a year or $ 1 million lump sum. The law separately States that the United States will continue to oppose the project “Northern stream-2”.
“We once again call on the administration of the tramp to perform his obligations under the law, signed by (the President) and supported by Congress. They had plenty of time to make relevant documents,” the senators say in a statement to the press.
In addition, dissatisfaction with politicians is the lack of “serious diplomatic efforts with partners from Europe to increase pressure on Moscow.”
The lawmakers added that they already do not write the first letter to the administration, but never received a response, and urge the administration to begin to take “decisive” steps in this area.
